|JJ enjoys her new quilt!|
When I got to JJ's house with my fixed sewing/embroidery machine, she was excited to get moving on the quilt that Erin and I had started, I think, seven years ago! It is a memory quilt with 27 different pictures of family and friends from years past! Erin and I made the squres by doing iron on transfers of the pictures, which we had scanned onto the computer and then printed on special fabric transfer paper (like you do for T-shirts). We had purchased all different kinds of M&M material showing M&Ms for all seasons. We framed each picture with various M&M fabrics; and then it quit raining at the cabin so we put it all away and went on to outside activities.
|I HAD to get the Harley patch on there somewhere. Also that cute lovebug!|
|JJ's grand daughters were included. This was last Easter!|
|The Woopdpecker picture and (much to her Dad's disgust and Jim and Carla's delight) Cowboy Joe from UW.|
|The pieced backing. Those are M&Ms.|
It all worked out well and then it was time to quilt it. I sewed around each picture, the inside and then the outside of each frame and the borders. I bound it and made a label and it was done!
|The final touch|
|A very cool bed covering!|
|And there it is!|
